God, I love Alfred Hitchcock movies–and what better time of the year — Halloween — to watch them once again and watch your hair turn gray! I’m watching Psycho on AMC right now, as a matter of fact, and felt compelled to find some Psychoness on YouTube.
Check out the theatrical trailer for Psycho, with Sir Hitchcock narrating:
The most recent spin on the Psycho story line is the retro themed thriller Bates Motel on A&E, which is heading into its fourth season this fall. Who doesn’t love dysfunctional Norman and his equally crazy mamma? This retro remake skillfully merges the past and present to create some truly creepy sequences that are a loosely based prequel to the Hitchcock masterpiece.
Of course no Psycho homage is complete without a tribute from the Talking Heads and “Psycho Killer!” on the Old Grey Whistle Test:
As a teen in the 80s, I was a byproduct of the oversize shirt/sweater craze, leggings, boots, and chunky jewelry. I love finding these treasures when hunting for vintage goodies, and recently found some great new things that bring back the new wave, punk rock energy of the “flock of seagulls” days.
How about this little retro gem from daisidvintjunky–it can be yours for a mere $72. I’m pretty sure The Smiths are playing in the background:
Those who have an uncommon eye for standing out in a crowd will want to shop at UncommonEye. This crowdpleaser is only $32.
Like Oh-my-gawd! Check out this serious ’80s flashback at FashionRerun and it’s only $14.
Zig Zag wonder in my Etsy shop – LoveDove Vintage is $12.99.
No retro girl’s wardrobe is complete without the little black bejeweled mini: $18.99 @ LoveDove Vintage:
